Pep Guardiola said he will not watch Manchester United’s game against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday when his Manchester City side could potentially seal the Premier League title, but instead he will be enjoying a round of golf with his son.

City can win the title on Sunday if Jose Mourinho’s men lose to West Brom or on Wednesday if they are beaten by Bournemouth.

Asked if he will check the score, Guardiola said: “I have a golf game with my son — bogey, double bogey, birdie. We will see. Football is unpredictable but normally United will beat West Brom. It doesn’t matter.”

City are 16 points ahead of United with five games to go after beating fourth-place Tottenham’s 3-1 on Saturday, only their second home loss of the season.

Pep Guardiola salutes Manchester City fans after win at Tottenham
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City beat Spurs 3-1 on Saturday with goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling.

“Before the derby [lost 3-1 against Manchester United] it was in our hands,” Guardiola said after the game at Wembley. “We have another chance but when one team in November, December has to hear every day they are already champions, it is so complicated to focus on what we have to do.

“People say it was a big failure, what happened last week, but they don’t understand the reality of football.

“In a competition like the Champions League, with decisions and good opponents in both games we could not complete closely against Liverpool but for the rest of the season we were outstanding. The guys are incredible.”

“You can win the Champions League in seven games, the league is 10 months. I’m sorry, it’s much more important what these guys have done this season. Hopefully we can celebrate with our fans against Swansea and be champions because they deserve it.”
